    I'm almost 98% confident that I have 3 little roos (one shown with the bigger comb) BUT is there any possibility that it may be a pullet? I've heard both roos & pullets will eventually have hackles/combs. They haven't started crowing yet but I have 3 that are showing a predominant comb/hackle development ... thoughts?

    All my black copper roosters had larger combs than the hens - I could tell right away. I'm pretty sure chickemaniac is correct. That is definintely a rooster.

    The little guy out front must be a roo. I am definitely far from being an expert but I have a 5 1/2 week old BCM and the comb is very small and pink and no sign of wattles.

    French Marans hens do have wattles, but they may take a little time to sprout...

    My little gal Sammi is slow at developing the wattles. She has a cute little comb and she is a sweetheart!
